Abstract for Next Colloquium
May 6 & 8, 2019
11:15am in PH1-223
Refreshments in HSCI-224 from 10:45-11:05am
Students - CSU Long Beach
Student Research Presentations
Undergraduate and graduate students of the department present progress and achievements in their research. It is also an informal setting to gather at the end of the semester. Pizza and drinks will be served.
The Colloquium is a unique opportunity for students to learn about new developments in physics and what physicists do after they graduate. Hosted by the Department of Physics and Astronomy at California State University Long Beach, the weekly meetings invite guests from universities, research laboratories, and industry to present and discuss current topics in physics. All students are encouraged to attend for a well-rounded experience and training in physics.
The schedule for Spring 2019 will conclude on May 8 with the final colloquium.
The following are Colloquia from this semester. The Colloquium Archive has the Colloquia from previous semesters.
